56859 solar cycle.

“Until recently it was thought that there were 28 cycles in the 309 years between 1699 and 2008, giving an average length of 11.04 years, but recent research has showed that the longest of these (1784–1799) seems actually to have been two cycles, so that the average length is only around 10.66 years.”

56851 down deep.

“Consider the subtleness of the sea; how its most dreaded creatures glide under water, unapparent for the most part, and treacherously hidden beneath … Consider all this; and then turn to this green, gentle, and most docile earth; consider them both, the sea and the land; and do you not find a strange analogy to something in yourself?”

56831 ocean of steel.

Beneath us in the city, where stunted columns cradle a blackened sky, lies a strange forest of bird calls, an inferno of clanking struts and pistons, sucking and exhaling the taint of ancient dust and smoke with the feverish march of clockwork, a surging ocean of steel.

56823 forest light.

Video. 1. Insects in the forests of Bohemia flutter and twirl in pine scented columns of air heavy with the summer heat. 2. The morning sun pirouettes with autumn trees as our car follows the winding mountain road on the way up to Mt. Ai-Petri in Crimea.

56809 forecast.

I stand alone in a late afternoon, heavy with stillness and threat, a wary eye on the gray shroud drawing close overhead, giving heed also to the electric frissons of a shuddering sky that ripples and shimmers across the broad river valley. The forecast is rain.

56789 consequently.

If we allow ourselves the luxury, we may find ways to make sense of a collection of unapologetically disparate sources, in such as way as to form a coherent and consequent whole, in spite of the best efforts of what we may think of as our common sense.

56760 isle of calm.

Although known to many solely as a holiday destination, the island in the western Mediterranean known as Mallorca reveals another dimension in winter, and when the sun-seekers and merry-makers recede, its other profiles step forward.

Field. This is an untouched recording of a freight train passing through an Iowa town in the mid afternoon of an early spring day. If you stick it out to the end, you will hear the three distant blasts of its horn as it makes the next grade level crossing.

56733 almost forgotten.

Are you lost? No. I used to live here. But you can get lost in the most familiar of places. Yes. A memory. From many years ago. You never forget it, even if you've only heard it once. What could be more simple when someone is lost in the dark, guided by memories?

56700 in the twilight.

“The frontier of our world is not far away; it doesn’t run along the horizon or in the depths. It glimmers faintly close by, in the twilight of our nearest surroundings; out of the corner of our eye we can always glimpse another world, without realizing it.”

“Run away! Today! Or tomorrow. But tomorrow might already be too late! Because what do people become around here? They just burn out like this old mountain that was once a volcano. And they will all be left with hearts of stone in the end. Hard stones. Cold stones. This is such a dead world!”
